Jelco HS-20 Audiophile Headshell

This Jelco HS-20 is similar to the Nagaoka MG-704. Made of Magnesium, it is about 2 grams beefier and slightly shorter so it should be used with the lightest of cartridges. Exactly the same as the Sumiko HS12, similar to the Ortofon LH-2000 which weighs in at 12grams.

Made in Japan. Has a chrome plated plug. The total weight as installed including the wireset leads, fingerlift, two screws, two nuts and two washers is 14.5 grams. This unit is equipped with extremely high quality wireleads. Gold connectors throughout.

Generally it will fit any turntable with a 'S' (SME/JEI type)shaped tonearm. It requires an empty socket at the front end of the tonearm.
Your socket must be .300 inches in diameter, have a notch in the top and the bottom! for the headshell alignment pins and have four contact in the socket in a square pattern as well as a rotating locking on the tonearm to hold this headshell in place. Yes! this unit has two stabilizing alignment pins that pull the top and bottom of the plug tight into your tonearm socket as you rotate the locking collar.

If you have a single set screw on the tonearm that holds a headshell in place, then this is not the headshell for you.

Great headshell
This is the best headshell for adjusting azimuth. High quality. Also nice weight for cartridges like the Denon DL103 which like added tonearm mass. Highly recommended. Worth the extra cost. Be aware that it has two guide pins on the shaft. Fine for my Pioneer pls 1000 table.

Great headshell! Precision crafted, identical to the black HS20 and Sumiko HS12 I already own. Azimuth adjustable and I like the color more than the picture. And as usual 2 days from Corvallis, OR!

Quality headshell
I got this as part of an exchange and the process was painless. Thank you Turntableneedles! High quality machined headshell identical to other azimuth adjustable Japanese models sold elsewhere, but for about $20.00 less. The finish is smooth and flawless and color is more silvery than bronze, so don't worry about it clashing with black or chrome colored tonearms. Azimuth adjustable feature is key, as not all headshells install level with the deck (place a bubble level on the headshell and check). I'm not going to claim I hear the differences between headshells, but my AT-3monoLP sounds nice.
